At the heart of the urban planning strategies is the Internet of Things. The IoT can help to make our cities smarter.
If you live or work in a city, you need to understand what smart city technologies can do for you and other citizens. All Analytics Radio is looking at the trends, opportunities, and challenges in building or enabling smart cities.
